The co-operative marketing
movement in Wisconsin, winch t'-'
gan 40 years ago with small mde- (
pendent creameries and cheese lac-,
tones, as rapidly reachmg the final
pal of co-operation—that of col-!
lective effort towards a unified
program based on large-scale mar- (
and team work between the
various commodity associations.
The stage is all set for a corn-)
bined attack on the real problem
co-operative marketing—that of;
working out a harmonious pro-,
gram of action by uniting the var-;
ious forces which heretofore were'
more than once crossing each oth
ers's wires.
Centralization of co-operative ef
fort will soon be an accomplished
fact in Wisconsin. As an initial
step in this direction a plan of co
operative action was worked out
involving the unification of effort
between the various administrative
and educational agencies, namely.
the Federal Farm Board, the Col
lege of Agriculture, the agricultur
extension force, the council of
problem of organization on
basis of team work between the
various co-operative associations in
the direction of large-scale mar

A most important step in this
direction was taken recently when
the marketing federations operat

about to establish a division of co

farmers are also learning the same
lessons, namely, that successful
co-operation is closely associated
with volume of transactions.

of transition from individual to
collective effort. The relations com

plan which is to include butter,

As a consequence of the estab

The Northern Pacific Railway
Company has just asked the Su
preme Court of the United States
to issue its formal writ of man
damus to compel District Judge
George M. Bourquin to obey the
order handed down by the Supreme
Court on Dec. 2 (IV U. S. Daily i
The Northern Pacific, it is stat
ed, sought a temporary restraining
I order and an interlocutory injunc
tion against the enforcement of an
s order of the Montana Board of
Railroad Commissioners, and Dis
trict Judge Pray granted the tem
porary restraining order "until the
plaintiff's application for an in
terlocutory injunction be heard and
determined by three judges as pro
vided by statute.
Before three judges were assem
bled, it is explained, District Judge
Bourquin, sitting alone, entertain
ed a motion by the defendants to
dismiss the bill on its merits and
to dismiss the temporary restrain
ing order. The plaintiffs objected
the brief declares, but Judge Bour
quin overruled the objections, sus
tained the motion to dismiss and
entered a final decree of dismissal.
The Supreme Court held that the
suit was within the terms and spir
it of section 380, title 28, of the
United States, and that Judge
Pray should have called to his as
sistance two other judges to hear
the application for an interlocu
tory injunction. The court's opin
ion concluded by declaring that
"we assume it will not be necessary
to issue a formal writ.
On Dec. 14, 1929, Judge Bour
quin issued the following order:
It is ordered that the hearing,
both in respect to the application
for a temporary and final injunc
tion, be set for Jan. 25, 1930." The
appointment of a master to report
his findings on that date also is
included in the order.
It is the contention of the peti
tioner that this order is not a com
pliance with the Supreme Court's
order of Dec. 2. Judge Bourquin
should have dismissed his order of
dismissal of May 31, ' 1929, it is
argued, and Jûdge Pray should
then have called two other judges

Charles G, Becklund, now a
dent of Plentywood, and then a
farmer, operating a ranch near
Dooley, has recently been vindicat
ed by the supreme court in two
cases. In one of these Hie First
National Bank of Raymond was
plaintiff and in the other the
Dooley Implement company was
plaintiff. Becklund owed both, his J
indebtedness being secured by chat- (
tel mortgage. Desiring to protect |
both such creditors, and being oon
vinced that he could not make the
grade, by his farming operations,!
he agreed with them to sell his i
property, subject to their chattel i
mortgages, at public auction. Geo. |
Epier, cashier of the Citizens State j
Bank of Dooley, clerked the sale. ,
Bef ° re , th * , sal e was h eld, it was
f* re ^ that the Raymond bank and
the Dooley Implement Company
would allow the property to be sk)d
